- ―The Question of Master Jrul
Jrul was a Jedi Master who lived sometime before the Clone Wars. The Master was attributed with formulating the famous Question of Master Jrul. Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi remembered Jrul's Question when he encountered the Separatist General Grievous on the bridge of the General's flagship, the Invisible Hand, in 19 BBY.
